Aleene's® Stiffen-Quik™ Fabric Stiffening Spray.
You'll also need:
- Assorted fabric pieces
- Clothes lines, clothes pins or freezer paper on a flat surface.
- Sewing machine or glue
- Tulip® Fashion Glitter™ Shimmer Transfer Sheets for embellishments
- two long sticks
- Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue®
Cut into strips. Using a rotary cutter makes it a lot easier! Sew into panels and then cut out two circles shapes, about 8" in diameter, each.
Spray again with the stiffener.
Let the two pieces dry. You can let them air dry on a flat surface like I did, or hang to dry.
NOTE: You don't have to be as elaborate as this when it comes to making the round pieces. I wanted to have fun and use contrasting fabric. You can use one solid piece of fabric to make your two circles without all the patchwork. Just make sure you add a lot of stiffener!
While those are drying, cut up your pieces of the Shimmer Transfer Sheets. Peel away the top coating.
- Back to the fabric pieces - once they are dry, add Tacky Glue to both sides of the stick and set it between the two pieces. Make sure to leave enough for a handle! Also, add some glue around the backing of one of the sides. Press together and sew the edges. Sew all around the edges.
Once its dry, iron on the shimmer sheet shapes you cut out earlier!
